In 2014, adidas and The Boardr partnered up to create a national shop versus shop contest series in the theme of the World Cup. In that first year, nearly 400 skaters from 91 different shops across the US participated. In 2015, the series went global adding additional stops in Berlin, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Sao Paulo, and Australia. Winners from each stop are flown to The Berrics to compete in the Global Series Finals. In 2014, it was Active Ride Shop. Who will it be in 2015? It’s unfolding now. Check the progress, coverage, and results so far below.

Honestly I was surprised with the Adidas event, Berrics oh my gosh!, Sunday 20 September here in Los Angeles,a big surprise.
Skater teams representing stores of the other countries and different states of USA too. The level was higher, skaters performed tricks already known with a high degree of difficulty and also showed in every performance the creativity.
The space chosen for this event very impressed. A completely indoor skate plaza, with optimal lighting, without truculent security, hamburgers, tacos, drinks and specially beer. With an audience of 500 people or more divided that’s huge space shouting and twisting to their favorite skate team on the skate plaza.
We were very well represented by a skater team from São Paulo, Brazil. I do not know them but I saw that they were dedicated, technical, faster, youngers and stylish and they were the first to run to open the event.
